Thanks to Dex, without him, I probably never had searched for some of my Pre-PJ stuff...

Anyways, the old one was supposed to look like those portrait's they had in Fire Emblem for the GBA, however, mine turned out to be quite ugly with weird facial anatomy and shoddy shading (well, back then I thought I created the worlds most awesome pixelart in the world o_o) and I honestly can't remember if it was a mere edit or if I actually did it from scratch, but I guess it doesn't matter ..

The new one still has some flaws, like the cheekbone on the right side and the sloppy shading on the hair, but overall I think it's quite an improvement... He also looks kinda like that one baddy from the first DS Castlevania, but thats pure coincidence, i swear!

old one had 12 colors I think, new one 15 including transparency screw that, its not transparent for some reason

Not really digging the new skin palette. Everything else is nice, though.

Owww this would have made a good challenge...

Old one ---> Cuter

New one ---> Kooler.

Nonetheless, a big improvement...

Great work dude! Can some one tell me when i know that my pixelart it isometric? Im confused...

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/28/2009 10:19

the first guy is more attractive. 

Archeo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/28/2009 07:18

New one looks great. But completely different to your first style.

I remember when I did an edit on the Fire Emblem-ish one 2006 in the rpg-forum.: D

Gj, love it how much you improved your skillz. Weiter so.

ow ma gawd! you really improved! :D

Levi (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/26/2009 18:35

interesting to see the differences between a few years of practice, I like the idea of redoing an old sprite.  Nice work!  My sprite work would only barely compete with the 2006 one XD

Nightmare Maker (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 7/26/2009 17:16

Your style amazes me *_*

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/26/2009 15:35

That's a really great improvement on the original, even though the original is nice too.

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 7/26/2009 13:57

New one looks much better but then I don't like the Fire Emblem style at all.  The personality of the character seems different too.  In the first he looks like one of them slightly rugged but noble heroes but in the new one he looks much more like a total thug. 

rehugun (Level 5 Sniper) @ 7/26/2009 13:29

Very nice =]

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 7/26/2009 12:53

Love the hair on the new one.

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/26/2009 12:27

 nice improvement!

Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 7/26/2009 11:59

faving for the manly sideburns

and the spriting is pretty damn cool too!

Hell's Sin (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/26/2009 11:41

 The first one really looks fire emblem-like and the new one is very well done.

I like it

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/26/2009 11:39
